The Daily Routines of Famous Creative People

I’m fascinated by how things (and people) work. So imagine how interested I was in this infographic about the daily routines of famous creative people.

Once you’ve got a handle on the color coding and the creative people documented in it, click on the image to bring it up in a new tab.

On the Podio webpage, you can toggle between the daily routines. Interested in the sleep routines of your favorite creatives? Click on Sleep in the legend and you’ll only see that category in the chart. Likewise, with creative work, day jobs, etc.

What I especially appreciate about this interactive infographic, is that it shows the wide span of behaviors from famous creatives. The ones selected for inclusion weren’t all night owls, nor did their creative work totally financially support them.

When I’ve had the opportunity to design my days and week, I tend to sleep from 10 pm to 7 am. A leisurely breakfast, reading and a workout are the first priorities of the day, and then my creative work happens in repeated cycles of energy (30-90 minutes) throughout the day.

Have you had the chance to design or document your ideal day?

Does it resemble any of the famous creatives above?
